That doesn't mean I haven't had some highlights in my days but by the time I get home those "highlights" seem too minor to blog about. (haha...as if all my posts are sooo blog-worthy!) I even told one teacher today that I sympathize with the kids who have to write in their journal everyday. Not as easy as it sounds.
Today, while helping one class during their writing time, I asked a little girl about her drawing.
Me: Who is this here?
(pointing to a stick figure)
Her: My daddy.
Me: What's he doing?
Her: Going to work.
Me: Where does he work?
Her: At his work.
Me: What does he do there?
Her: Works on work stuff.
Well, there you go. I have been going to work. At my work. And working on my work stuff. That's where I've been.
Later today, I was putting an art project up on the wall in another classroom and I just had to grab the camera. It made me laugh and I think you will too. This art project is a "listening" project. Each child starts the project with the same colored squares and rectangles of paper and they are told one step at a time how to cut the paper and where to glue it on the big piece of paper. The end project is very telling.....as in who listens carefully to the directions. And who goes to town with the scissors.
Ladies and gentlemen.....I give you our President.
